bar friday night the bomb was a fake and the man who gave it to him was an undercover fbi agent according to the fbi the alleged attempted bombing was the culmination of months of planning by him during which the agency says he made a list of 29 potential targets in chicago then scatter the targets to see which one would wreak the most devastation but it's a tactic used by the fbi during the investigation that the suspect's attorney said is cause for concern. the u.s. attorney's office argued today that the evidence not only shows that he was the instigator every step along the way and his alleged plan to kill americans but that he also had numerous opportunities to back out. the misguided team of middle eastern descent. durkin says he will continue to request his client be released pending trial i still think we can come up with conditions that will make it every bit as safe for him as at home as it is in kankakee. the next step in the case will be the agreement it will be scheduled for sometime in the next 7-10 days. prosecutors in colorado given up their fight to four the no

allegiance. giffords was severely wounded in an attack last year. >>> the fbi is investigating a nasty hoax, a woman and her new boyfriend allegedly pulled on her ex. a u.s. airways flight to dallas returned to philadelphia thursday. officials had gotten a call that christopher shell had explosives on board. he was on his way home to celebrate his 29th birthday. instead he was taken off the plane at begun point. cbs news learned his ex's new boyfriend may have placed the call. shell didn't help by posting on facebook that a friend escorted him through security. >> the only thing i did do is walk through with him and guide him around and help him carry things and tell him what the regulations were. >> but shell ended up spending his birthday in jail. he was arrested when he arrived in dallas on outstanding warrants. all kind of drama. >>> last night's pittsburgh/cincinnati football game in ohio, a member of the band did a lip-synching. cameras caught a trumpet player tumbling down the stadium steps. it caused his instrument to break apart. he managed to put the trumpet back together but miss
learn from bret baier and his reporting as of right now there hasn't been a single fbi agent on the ground in benghazi. we're all looking toward that investigation because that's what we're told from the administration will provide more answers, the fbi investigation, if no one is on the ground what are we to make of that? >> i think you make a couple of things. why is anybody not on the ground? is it too dangerous for the fbi to go there? secondly if the administration says, hold your horses wait until we got full investigation and we find out there is no investigation, again, it is that drip, drip, drip. what did they know? when did they know it? why are they trying to cover it up and what is going on? it wasn't so unsafe in benghazi a cnn reporter went there several days ago and got the ambassador's personal diary. maybe somebody is there but not the united states fbi. jenna: we'll watch the continuing to develop story. kt, thanks for your insights. well have much more on the controversy over the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. top senators on the senate foreign rel
. natalie is off, tamron hall at the news desk. >> good morning, everyone. the fbi investigating the motive behind a plain location has forced a us airways flight to turn around midair and head back to the airport. pete williams is in washington this week. good morning, pete. >> reporter: tamron, good morning. a passenger aboard that us airways flight in pennsylvania to see a family in texas is at the center of all this. the fbi said he was a completely innocent victim unaware of what was in store. christopher shell of philadelphia intended thursday to be a celebration of his birthday. instead he was twice taken into custody by police at two different airports in handcuffs. he had just settled in for a morning us airways flight to dallas when he posted this on his facebook page, quote, we just spent a half hour in the air onto be notified the plane has technical difficulties and have to fly back. >> going back to texas for his birthday. the company he worked for was paying for him to go back. said he had broke up with his girlfriend. >> reporter: moments later a stunned christopher shell wa
's one of the worst things i found out. that depressed me a great deal. this came out of the fbi records. there is material there suggesting that j. edgar hoover really organized a campaign among some of his agents to talk publicly, loud voices, about how adlai stevenson was gay. and hoover did keep a file on stevenson. you know that he had this special closet of stuff in his office. and he would also tell fbi agents to try to circulate this in chicago. so this is one of these sort of hidden rumors that in '52 nobody talked about this openly; it was too soon. but there was a lot of whispering around about how adlai stevenson was gay. and this was totally untrue and totally unfair. and so when we think about dirty campaigns, i think we've got to remember 1952 as a very dirty campaign. c-span: you say that near the end he ballooned to 200 pounds. >> guest: 220 pounds, yeah. c-span: what was his normal weight when he was governor? >> guest: probably about 160, 180. c-span: what happened? >> guest: well, i think the last part of his life he really became somewhat obsessive. he did have a fam
: the fbi says 26-year-old kenneth w. smith jr. of philadelphia admitted making the telephone call to police that forced the us airways jet bound for dallas to turn around in midair. >> no comment, please. >> reporter: but that was the beginning of a high-flying drama that resulted in the arrest of a man who used to date smith's girlfriend. in the phone call, authorities say smith claimed that christopher schell, a passenger on the plane, was carrying a liquid explosive. a s.w.a.t. team surrounded the plane in philadelphia and removed schell in handcuffs but they found no explosives. steve mcneil was sitting next to him. >> going back to texas for a birthday. the company he was works for was paying for him to go back, said he just broke up with his girlfriend. >> reporter: schell told authorities that he believed his ex-girlfriend and smith were responsible for the phone call threat. schell was released without charges and allowed to fly on to dallas. the fbi arrested smith and charged him with giving false and misleading information about an explosive device. >> it's just an incredibly fool
in on the consulate attackers. >> reporter: a team of fbi investigators has arrived here in benghazi. they're gogt to now begin sifting through the rebel and ashes at the u.s. consulate to identify any clues or evidence that may help them in identifying who is behind the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans. we also understand that the libyan government for their part is cooperating with the u.s. intelligence agencies and other agencies involved in the investigation. the libyan government believes that this was a preplanned attack, that this was not a spontaneous outburst of violence as some have suggested. so far they have four individuals in their custody. they say several more are under surveillance. they are trying to see whether these individuals have any important information that can benefit the american investigation. meanwhile, u.s. intelligence assets including unmanned aerial drones are keeping an eye above the skies of benghazi and eavesdropping on the people below to see if there's any communication that could also shed some light onto tuesday's attack. the
's of a significant concern for us and again i'll look forward to working with secretary napolitano and the fbi on this issue. >> thank you very much. >> senator, and i, too, congratulate you on your years of service and service to the country. i reflect what madam secretary and director olsen both stated. we have a weapons of mass destruction directorate that works closely with the department of energy, with composed of dhs as well as nctc, and tracking, following, and trying to be in a mode where we are able to detect any thefts along those lines. we will have to have some time to review the factual aspects of the gao report and get back to you on that, but we work closely with our counterparts in these agency, as was the department of energy to mitigate those threats. >> thank you again for your partnerships. it really shows. as you know, secretary napolitano, as you know the senate failed to pass comprehensive cybersecurity legislation prior to the august recess. because the process of the legislation here are damn, i support the personal use of his authorities to improve cybersecurity of t
with fixing it. things like the supervision of the process of investigation is very different for the fbi then it is for atf. my basic question is why? why does fbi have one supervising and atf has a different process overseen by the same doj. the scope of the task that you mention in your report with atf if there is irregular functioning criminal function overlap at times and there are obvious issues. and i'm going to either tunica comment. the size of the agency and what they're trying to accomplish. as i read through your report, got to page 338 and there was a very interesting comment that basically alluded to the fact that atf of phoenix is over their head. they were trying to take on the massive task in outlets like they were trying to accomplish something big, but they didn't have the right people, were not coordinated this particular group of asians were in way over their head and should not be engaged. again, goes back to the scope of the task. i've got one more issue it to visit, but i want to talk about the issue of regulatory versus criminal responsibility in the task given to
but there is not much evidence at all for the disappearance northwestern university police have called in the fbi there are two evanston detectives working the case right now and there is a statewide police alert out there for him if you have any information about this northwestern university medical students are asked to contact police police say it appears a suburban teenager was targeted in a deadly drive-by shooting. 18-year old joshua holmes was shot about 6-30 last night in an unincorporated area south of willowbrook. witnesses saw the passenger of a white vehicle pulled out a gun and shot holmes several times. where he was pronounced dead. anyone with information is asked to call the dupage county sheriff's office. two people were killed and two others wounded in a drive-by shooting in the west pullman neighborhood. it happened at 120th and eggleston around 2:35 this morning. police think the gunfire came from inside a dark-colored chrysler. 25 year-old quiltavia patterson died at the scene. 38 year-old jermaine carter died at the hospital. patterson had a college degree, had three year-o
with the f.b.i. that may have been able to do something about this. greg, you talk about, the day that 9/11 happened they were dancing in streets, i found to be outrageous. and -- >> greg: no one questions the root causes for their idiocy. not much time on campuses are spent on discussing being justices, only if the injustice is perpetrated by the united states. >> eric: there are verses in quran that con dom condone jiha. nonbelievers killing them. that is a sign to allah you are doing the right thing. that is cause of islamics extremist. >> andrea: you got upset with me earlier because i brought up something off-topic but i think it was related. we spend time not thinking about september 11. but we talk a lot about debt and deficit. the reason we were able to be successful to this point is we have money to be strong, to fund this. when we waste it on stupid things we can't be strong. we can't have a strong military. so, all of this is related. our financial security has directly related to the national security. i know we took a day offer of politics today. >> dana: well, for now. at t
.s. airways flight turned into fp. >> several fbi and atf agencies came in from the back of the plane, walked up to the middle of the plane and pointed guns at a tim lard passengers. >> that passengers washington shell, pulled from the plane after a phone called warned airport police he was trying to carry explosives onto the plane. >> we checked him and determined that he was not in the possession of anything dangerous, hazardous or illegal. >> officers called it a nasty trick, a hoax carried out on shell's 29th birthday. >> whoever it is, they should be held accountable. >> shell pointed the finger at kenneth smith, the new boyfriend of an ex-girlfriend. but it was shell who found himself in a compromising position when he finally landed at dfw airport late yesterday, where officers against were waiting on the tarmac. all the publicity caught the attention of police in texas where shell faced arrest warrants after missing court appearances. >> no comment, just let me alone, please. >> reporter: this afternoon he posted bond and walked out jail with the same carry-on and clothes on the initi
or to the artwork. >> i'm with you. give her some money. the interesting thing, melissa, the fbi is investigating of they want to find the actual thief. remi and i defend people. they can't find thieves from seven weeks ago. are you kidding? good luck, people. melissa: maybe have the movie rights. when they find the burglar and whole thing would be like, yeah. >> she will need an agent to negotiate that. melissa: this is not fair. come on the show. we'll make you feel better. anyway, up next, a mom challenging the tsa over peanut butter a security agent at the airport confiscates her kid's peanut butter saying banned liquid or jell. what peanut but ther is liquid? they let her keep apple sauce and jelly more liquid like. the mom filed a claim with tsa. ended up get refund for $3.99 which was her cost of the peanut butter at whole foods. what do you think about this one? >> awesome. absolutely. she motivated to file the claim. kept the receipt. this was all over peanut butter? could you imagine, melissa, like wheaties or something? she was motivated. >> i don't understand about this, she packed a
, and we worked with doj and the fbi to investigate and prosecute criminals. we serve as a focal point for the government's out reach an awareness efforts. it is important note that private industry owns and operates the vast majority of the country's critical infrastructure networks. the private sector plays a critical role in protecting the nation's cybersecurity. dhs has initiated programs to promote that collaboration. we have spearheaded the development of the first-ever national cyber incident response plan to enable us to coordinate responses to incidents at all levels just like we do for incidents in the physical world. the private sector is also an active participant in the national cybersecurity communications and integration center. it is a watch setter that coordinates activities across the government and with private sector partners, providing watch and warning, analysis, and response. dhs is leading efforts to protect critical information infrastructure by sharing information, helping stakeholders identify former abilities before an incident occurs and providing for its a
-- protect medicare and preserve all 9 the institutions of the federal government that we need from the fbi to the faa. you can't possibly do all of those things. that was my problem. how does the math add up? so to me, he's still at war with math. and i think that's where "the wall street journal" editorial is quite a positive. how are you going to do these things? i believe this time is different. i think the american people really do want a plan. they want one from romney. they want one from obama. and i think they will reward someone who they feel has laid down a credible plan, and please, please, don't tell me it isn't going to hurt. there's no way we get out of this hole without working. they want it to be real. they want it to be fair. the wealthy pay more. everybody pays something. and they want it to be aspirational. they want it to be not just about balancing the budget, but making this country rich. >> doris kearns goodwin there is this appetite for substance for a credible plan but campaigns are still, in many cases, about style over substance. here's the week magazine and on th
,000 from a developer, and failed to disclose it as a gift and only when the fbi started asking about it did it get reported as a quote, unquote, loan. he said i needed stuff -- i needed stuff for my house. he had just gotten a sweetheart deal from a real estate -- >> john: you know this goes back to what i think of nixon getting money to buy his house on seaside, so he got the house somehow, and then more money has been funneled to congressman meeks? >> yes, the house he thought he made $833,000 for it. >> john: is this where we bought the house from a loan from an indicted new york businessman. >> no that was from a developer, butten in he got a loan from another developer. and loans can, of course be gifts under house ethics rules. but in any event. it really did look like a gift. a loan can be a gift if you are getting the loan because you are a member of congress -- >> so they are just like us then? >> yeah, we have seen a lot of people get in trouble over the loan problem. >> john: so rivera meeks, and vern buchanan. >> we have been focusing on him since 2006.
they are trying to do is hide behind the fact of an fbi investigation that's pending in libya. which i find ridiculous. the idea that the administration has returned to terrorism as a criminal law matter rather than as a continuing war is extraordinarily disturbing. >> i am even surprised at the discussion. why in the world did anyone need a warning? i've traveled to some of the dangerous places around the country. i haven't been to libya, but i would suspect that place would look pretty dangerous to me. they have a grand new government, lots of factions, you have people fighting each other, fighting the old administration. why would you even need a warning that we really have to have lots of security for our people? >> we were obviously caught by surprise both in libya and in egypt. different situations but caught by surprise in both cases which means only one of two things. either there's a massive intelligence failure not to see this coming, or the administration believes that things were so benign, that the environment was so calm they didn't have to worry about it. wrong in both cases.
for customers logging in for now is just an inconvenience, simon. we should note that the fbi said that this problem largely affected the small to medium sized banks and credit unions, those large banks of course are not excluded from this. back to you. >> in a collective move, the defense secretary leon panetta is in china this week. he met with china's likely heir apparent who was of course inexplicably missing from the public scene until just a few days ago. japanese attacks on our u.s. companies and the infrastructure, panetta says he brought up the issue at every session but came away with little more than agreements to keep talking with the chinese. >> indeed, simon. a federal reserve report out today shows household net worth in the u.s. fell between april and june of this year. household debt rose a rate of 1.3%. that's the biggest jump since the first quarter of 2008. >>> jpmorgan meanwhile is ramping up its call on the s&p 500. they are expecting a melt-up into election day with the s&p exceeding 1,495 short term. jeff kilburg, what do you think. >> it is hard to disagree
was director of the fbi before he became the administrator. the tsa and mr. was a vacant position. there was an act did -- activity in there. it took them a while. when they got somebody in there, mr. pistol, everybody agreed he was a great man for the job, and he has made his goal to try to make tsa smarter. as a man who came on board at the fbi and saw the intelligence world grow after 9/11, he wanted to do the same with tsa and have them be a little bit leaner, smarter, and a manifestation of that is the new trust it traveler initiative. if you file on time and they know your history, you're not a terrorist, the odds are. they're using common sense in applying a trusted traveler system so they can focus their resources of people they know less about. host: the head of the tsa made a comment last month, talking about the type of terrorist threat that concerns him the most. [viceo clip] >> the concern is not so much we know who are on the watch list -- >> you can see the rest of this act c-span.org. the title. the clerk: report to accompany house resolution 773, resolution provid
, from the f.b.i., and from the administration discussing this very question. gathering all the information we possibly can, making sure we have the facts before we make a quick judgment about the role of libya, the role of terrorists and what we've seen to date. it's a response by the libyan government, even the firing of one of their top officials who made an inappropriate remark relative to this attack. so, in conclusion, madam president, i encourage my colleagues to pause and look at the larger picture when it comes to foreign aid. cutting off aid and disengaging from these countries is exactly what the perpetrators of these attacks and protesters are trying to achieve. i do not know if supporting the governments in this volatile region in this revolutionary movement will bring us the results we so urgently need. but if we are to review thoroughly the tools available to us -- and i'm convinced that we must -- we should not begin by throwing out the tools that we have. we need to sharpen those tools and better define their use but not discard them prematurely. madam presi
